OTR Tire Inspection
Off-the-road (OTR) tires are tough and durable, but because they are used for extra-heavy loads and super-hard work, it’s vital to inspect them regularly. The inspection process is very similar to that used for any other tires, but because of the nature and size of OTR tires, it is essential to be especially vigilant.
Some OTR tires feature speed symbols and load symbol marks that indicate maximum speeds and loads they are designed to carry. So, for example, a truck or scraper could safely be driven at 30 mph (50 km/h), while a dozer should be driven much more slowly, at only 5 mph (10 km/h). When drivers go too fast, or overload the tires, reduced tire performance will be inevitable, and tire failure will likely be premature. So it really is essential to take OTR tire inspections seriously.
Besides checking the inflation pressure on a monthly basis, the best way to maximize tire life is to rotate the tires every 5,000 – 7,000 miles, depending on your vehicle. During rotation, each tire and wheel is removed from your vehicle and moved to a different position to ensure that all of the tires wear evenly and last longer.
A routine tire rotation is necessary due to the difference in tread wear that occurs on the front and rear tires. The front tires are used in steering, while the rear tires remain relatively stationary in terms of lateral movement.
The Deep Of The Tread
Check the depth of the tread regularly to ensure you know how much rubber is left on all the tires. If there isn’t sufficient tread on tires they are more likely to blow, so use a proper tire gauge to measure the tread depth, and replace the tires when they start to get thin.Often the tread on tires wears down unevenly, so a good approach is to rotate the tires. Move those that have a lower tread to the rear and keep the ones with a better tread in front. Never allow the tread to get dangerously low.
